The articles in this book, written by seven internationally known experts, present the fundamentals and practical applications of comtemporary wind engineering dealing with wind-building interaction complex problems from the perspective of a structural designer. Both experimental and computational approaches and their relative merits are presented and analyzed. The book presents state-of-the-art material in a rapidly progressing area that cannot be found in any other of the limited number of books in this area.

Junior architects and engineers will learn the treatment of wind engineering , an area not traditionally taught at underground university programs. Junior structural designers will be informed about the progress made on experimental and computational wind engineering design of complex structures.
